UAB has hired former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer as its next head coach. UAB athletic director Mark Ingram announced the hiring Wednesday. Dilfer, who won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens in 2000, has been the head coach at Lipscomb Academy in Nashville, Tennessee, since 2019. He has guided the school to three state championship games, including one scheduled for Thursday against Christ Presbyterian Academy. He has no previous college coaching experience. No terms were announced pending formal approval of Dilfer’s contract from the Board of Trustees.
